BN CARS COME CLEANER FASTER IN NEW WASHER FACILITY

Features of an automatic box car washing machine designed jointly by Burlington Northern's engineers and Whiting Corp. This automatic machine, which operates in conjunction with a car progression system also built by Whiting, helps keep car interior cleaning costs to about $1 per car. The car cleaning facility can handle up to 56 cars a day on two tracks. The washing apparatus itself moves into the car through the door opening, and the washing arms themselves then extend to the far reaches of the car.
